Hibs’ striker Jamie Gullan has been called up for the Scotland Under-21 squad for the UEFA qualifiers against Croatia at Tynecastle and Greece at the Theodoros Vardinoyannis Stadium.
The youngster was on-loan to Raith Rovers during the early part of the season and quickly became a fans’ favourite scoring an impressive nine goals
He returned to Easter Road in January and came off the bench to score his first goal for the club in Hibs’ 5-2 Scottish Cup victory over Inverness Caledonian Thistle, before being handed his first start in the weekend defeat to Aberdeen.
The home match will kick-off at 7pm on Friday, 27 March in Edinburgh as Scotland continue their bid for qualification.
Head Coach Scot Gemmill said: “Tynecastle is a fantastic stadium with excellent facilities, one which we’re familiar with and it presents another fantastic opportunity for our young players.
“We face a difficult challenge hosting Croatia. Away from home we showed resolve and character to come back from a goal down and win, but we know we will be facing a talented side in Edinburgh later this month.
“I speak often about our players testing themselves against different types of teams and players, Croatia is a great example of that type of test due to their rich history in producing talented players at international level.”
